Saturday June 17th

Our preliminary application was approved and we received our offical application in the mail today. It was long (not overwhelming) and detailed, but was understood that. There was also a letter explaining how long the wait in China is (and I have heard this from all agencies we have checked out) but there was one problem. the letter was addressed to Steve and Nancy! I hope Steve and Nancy got our letter.

I must tell you that more and more am I feeling at peace about this. I wondered for maybe one minute how our family and friends would react and if they would accept this new family member. I obviously got over that.My inlaws have been so supportive and its quite exciting that they live so close by..

We know we are looking at a 12-18 month wait and I am very okay with that. In 9-10 months, I will probably grow very impatient but thats okay. this morning as I was getting ready to leave work there was an adoption story on with a family adopting from India..It was truly sweet and wonderful and makes this journey more exciting!
